The Observatory is a registered charity run by the Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory Trust, which in turn is administered by the Council of Trustees. The Trust is governed in line with our charitable aims and our Constitution (available in our members area or on request). The trustees usually meet at least once a month to oversee the running and financial management of the charity. The committees described below report to the trustees.

A number of committees oversee various aspects of the Trust's work including reserve management and conservation, ringing, shop, volunteers and clubs. Members of the Trust, as well as Trustees, sit on these committees and ensure that the Trust continues to function effectively.
